The illustrations in the book are incredibly bland/boring and the whole book has a negative tone. It reinforces the idea of "mine mine mine", that throwing tantrums are normal, and that its okay to be nasty to others when you don't get your way. My toddler could care less for this book, as do I. Wish I never bought it. It's being tossed or put in the donations pile. I have absolutely no idea why there are so many good reviews, it's not worth the money and certainly I wouldn't recommend reading it to children.
